Terms for all municipal offices are four years, with elections being held every two years. This means that three members run at one time with the other three running two years later. The purpose of this provision for staggered terms is to ensure that the Council is never completely composed of freshmen members.
In the event that no candidate receives a majority, a runoff election will be held between the two candidates receiving the highest number of votes. When a runoff must be conducted, it is held the 28th day after the original election, unless postponed by court order.
